The best coffee shop in London!

My Old Dutch

The best place for pancakes on Shrove Tuesday - or any day of the year for that matter!

Exmouth Market

Amazing fresh food for all tastes. Charming, especially at night. A great place to relax in the sun.

The Zetter Townhouse

Amazing cocktails - especially the Twinkles recommended by the waiter - impressive service, great atmosphere and a quirky, eccentric interior.

Ibérica Farringdon

A great spot for tapas right by Farringdon Station, with good value, super tasty food and a buzzy atmosphere.

The Modern Pantry

Great brunch/lunch spot and really fresh food. Worth booking as people come especially to Clerkenwell to eat here.

Kerbisher & Malt

Sustainable and stylish fish and chips that taste fantastic!

Brasserie Blanc

One of world renowned chef Raymond Blanc's chain restaurants with delightful views over Covent Garden. Ideal for after work drinks or reasonably priced, freshly prepared meals.

Bohemian cafes and shops with a relaxed vibe - the brightly painted frontages add to the quirky nature of this delightful central back street.

DoubleTree by Hilton

Great for family or group dinners. Looks very classy and the food is delicious. Voucher deals are always available. If you think you can't afford the Hilton, think again!

One Aldwych

The afternoon tea at One Aldwych is a magical experience. Inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the steaming cocktail is just one of the culinary spectacles!
